220 episodes

You're Welcome is a satirical improv comedy show whose goal is to find and share peoples stories, from all over the world.

Each episode is unique and can range from 5 minutes to an hour, and will feature a brand new topic usually with someone Zoe has just met. This podcast is not for the faint of heart, buckle up.

ABOUT YOU'RE WELCOME

Like most brilliant ideas, this show was started over a molotov concoction of alcohol and various illicit substances. Zoe had given up on her life long dream, of being the female Howard Stern years ago but finally set out armed with a folding table, a couple lawn chairs, and a foam board sign that read "Free Sex Advice." One by one strangers stopped what they were doing and sat down to talk to them about their lives.

We'd like to take this moment to thank you for coming to our site and leave you with the eternal words of Oscar Wilde:

"I was under the impression that inordinate joviality can atone for an entire lack of class"

This show is done for one reason only, to bring laughter and remind you that we are all the same.

    THE PANDA EXPRESS TRAIN TO EXTINCTION - Zoe Vs. Hong Kong Round 1 /2/3 AND 4

    THE PANDA EXPRESS TRAIN TO EXTINCTION - Zoe Vs. Hong Kong Round 1 /2/3 AND 4

    WELCOME to Zoe Vs. China - four of my favorite episodes from my journey's out east. Now this has everything - tears - horror - love - struggle -heart - political unrest - regular peoples hopes and dreams to try to maintain a life in a place that is changing by the fucking second. First things first:
    China is insane. Hong Kong is literally like being inside of Tron. I have never in my life seen so much wealth, or been so unhappy with the cost of literally everything. It’s an amazing city, but its very difficult to live there. Some of the highest rents on the planet for the tiniest apartments, 29 dollars for a salad, you need to be a member of the Saudi Royal Family to buy gas, laundry detergent costs about one once of gold. However, it is a little fantastic shining metropolis inside of the big belly of the beast that is the People’s Republic of China. Millions and of people are everywhere. Everyone is in designer clothes, everyone has pockets full of cash and suitcases they are stuffing to the literal brim with medicine, diapers, baby formula, potions, lotions and gems. It's nuts. The whole place is a giant shopping mall. It's very odd, and made me very uncomfortable.
    Now, real China makes me nervous. For someone who has a large and increasingly loud mouth, this is a nightmare place to be. There are cameras everywhere, the Government is tracking you constantly and you can almost feel them creeping into this tiny little European enclave.
    Whenever I left Hong Kong and went into "real" China, I was almost certain I would be arrested just for being me. When Britain gave back Hong Kong to China in 1997, it signed an agreement saying that the freedoms it had enjoyed as a Colony would stay in place for 50 years, but little by little, China is violating these agreements and stripping people away of their rights.
    One night, after drinking far to many glasses of wine I called an Uber to take me home and my driver was so fabulously witty, so elegant and had such good dirty jokes that I decided I needed to sit down with him and ask him question after question about what was life for someone growing up in this magical place and the real dangers that are facing Hong Kongs future as the rules and regulations of the Mainland close in.

    WELCOME TO SLAB CITY : A Place for those who long to be FREE

    WELCOME TO SLAB CITY : A Place for those who long to be FREE

    So...how did I end up in Slab City...? Well..it's a long story. But the short version is a friend of mine asked me if I wanted to go to an anarchy festival next door to a meth head campground where people would be exploding home made bombs and setting cars on fire and I said....maybe? But my curiosity about Slab City had started years ago because let me just give you a brief description of what it is. Slab City is a plot of land that is still technically up for grabs out in the middle of nowhere 3 hours past Indio (Coachella) in California. Travelers, veterans, retirees, anarchists, transgenders, renegades from the law, meth heads, artists, counter culture champions, musicians, families, anyone and everyone can be found here in this tiny little oasis in the desert. There is no plumbing, electricity, mail, police, or taxes. It's a perfect little ecosystem of what can happen when humans are left to organize themselves from scratch and find ways to live in Harmony with nature while having their basic food, shelter and water needs met.
    Slab City has a Library, a farm, a Internet cafe, a hotel, a hot springs, a art collective, a stage with live music, people selling crafts and jewelry spread around and a fully functioning meth lab. Some plots are beautiful, with a well organized set up, some are actual garbage dumps, with questionable humans living in ways you wouldn't want to imagine. It is full of some of the most colorful humans you could imagine, and for someone like me, it's kind of a paradise. No one here has anything to lose, and nothing to hide. They have faced the elements and themselves by living out here alone in the desert and they seriously don't give a fuck. It's WONDERFUL. Before you get the Slab City is the amazing "Salvation Mountain" Leonard Knights 28 year sacrifice to God. It's insane. Primary colors pop in all directions turning a once mud light colored desert floor into a giant work of technicolor art. It's truly something everyone should see once in their lifetime. I spent four days living in an RV and trying to get people to talk to me. It wasn't easy. People rightfully so are a bit cautious when a loudmouth jewess rolls up demanding friendship and community. But I eventually won a couple over and then the doors to Narnia were opened and I fell head first into this very specific slice of the planet with it's own militia, rules and regulations.
    love Slab City, it's full of men like him who have a heart of gold and stories until the cows come home. The main message I got here was
    1. Everything is an illusion
    2. We are all connected beings
    3. Why would you slave your life away working to own things that provide you no pleasure?

    Big Trouble In Little Vagina - Best of Zoe Vs Porn World

    Big Trouble In Little Vagina - Best of Zoe Vs Porn World

    Back to basics, back to where I belong. In a broke down NJ poorly lit convention center surrounded by Porn Stars and the people who love them, and the last frontier for DVD sales. I don't know why I love places like this so much. It's full of such wonderfully weird people, and no one gives a F**K. There is a freedom, and a overt grime that allows everyone there to relax. The moment you step inside those doors everyone is on the same playing field. Everyone's like yeah, I'm a pervert, I admit it, and so are you so let's have a great time.
    I was fascinated, still am about the bravery and circumstances that would lead someone to show their tuchus hole to the world. People always say I'm so free and shameless, well I would NEVER be brave enough to record any part of my naked body and put it out for general consumption. 
    So, I've interviewed ALOT of different people involved in various sex related businesses over the years, and here are some of my favorite interviews involving the porn world. These have been recorded way pre pandemic - but their message and info are still fresh to death. 
    This shit is NFSW to the fucking max. It can be sad, it can be exhilerating, but most of all it's honest, and grimey and for me, it's some of my favorite work I ever did. 
    ENJOY!!

    F$CK ART BASIL $$$

    F$CK ART BASIL $$$

    ART BASEL. What is it exactly? It’s a big f**k off money laundering party where you'll see some of the most innovative art in the world but you have to search in between piles of excrement, so large, you'll think they're a set from Jurassic Park.
    I love artists, and I love creation in all forms, but what I don't love is that the wealthy gallery elite have sucked all of the soul and fun out of it. I am NOT saying that there isn’t bright spots of creative genius all over, all I am saying is the price tags are HILARIOUS and most of the ideas about as fresh as Monday night’s fish.
    What is art? I ask this question every year. Some of the things I see at Art Basel tread a VERY fine line between what I think is a discarded pile of trash and what is considered to be revolutionary art work. But...who am I to judge?
    Every year I go, and every year I'm left with the same question, WHY DOES THIS STUFF COST SO MUCH.
    Every year some guy with a german accent and cool colorful glasses explains it to me, but I still don't understand. 
    I have tried to understand it but this is the year I am officially throwing in my white hankie. I’m done, I’m out. The rich and famous no longer interest me.

Unstoppable

Really getting those real talks and rambles and live and strangeness and distaste and tastiness. I didn’t know what to expect. Actually, I still don’t. But I’m glad I started. And I don’t think I can stop. Get in it.

Native Alien ,

Best podcast on the planet!

Zoe’s got balls of steel and is a master of finding the most unique people alive.

BEST PODCAST OF ALL TIME CANT STOP ITS LIKE PRINGLES

I didn’t know I needed this show in my life. It’s ridiculously funny - heart warming and inspirational. Careful though it’s addictive - I love it I love her so happy I found this. One million stars.
